How we created the new Seven Pillars model

Our second talk in Helsinki was a very practical one about the process we went through to create the new 7Ps model and research lens. This was the first time Ruth and I have tried to describe the whole process and I think we both enjoyed the experience. We talked about the original model and how well it has been adopted around the world, using our own institutions as examples.
After more discussion about the strengths and weaknesses of the model, we went on to describe the (often painful!) process of creating the new version. There was a lot of interest in the Information Literacy Landscape (see link above) as well as positive reaction to the concept of moving away from skills to encompass attitudes and behaviours.
We used the "one thing" technique I've used before to gather feedback from the group and I'll summarise that on the blog once we've had time to analyse it.
